Mother hides baby in car trunk to avoid ticket
A mom in Florida is accused of stuffing her 5-month-old baby in the trunk of her car, to avoid getting a ticket from police.
Breona Synclair Watkins was pulled over by police on Tuesday morning for a broken headlight.
Police say they heard crying from the trunk.
When they opened it, they found the baby lying on top of a pair of cutting shears and a tire iron.
Authorities also said they found a gas can and a used fuel pump in the trunk.
Deputies believe Watkins asked her 14-year-old passenger to hide the baby in the trunk as she was getting pulled over.
She didn’t want to get ticketed for not having a car seat.
She’s got bigger problems now. She’s being held on $7,000 bond.
